MONTANA MITES. [Miner.] A daily passenger coach is to be put on th route between Bannack and Dillon next wee] and the daily pony mail from Willis to Ban nack will be suspended. Superintenden Howell's action in this matter meets the hearty approval of the people living on the Bannack-Dillon line, and they all proclain the Captain a stage man of superior judg ment. Considering the remarkably severe winte: we are passing through generally all ove: Montana, the vast herds of cattle ranging or the Beaverhead valley are in splendid condi tion. Hundreds of head of the choicest bee: cattle can be collected in that valley. [Independent.] Mr. Charles Roberts came in on the 17tt from Hound creek, Meagher county. He came by way of Chestnut and says that ther( is abundant grass and the range betweer Hound creek and Chestnut.

THE PORTRAIT. In a lumber attic room, Where, for want of light and air, Years had died within the gloom Leaving dead dust everywhere, Everywhere: Hung the portrait of a lady, With a face so fair! Time had long since dulled the paint Time that all our art defies- And the features now are faint, All except the wondrous eyes Wondrous eyes, Ever looking, looking, looking, With such sad surprise, As man loveth, man had loved Her whose features faded there; As man mourneth, man had mourned. Weeping, in his dark despair, Bitter tears, When she left him, broken-hearted, To his death of years. Then for months the picture bent All its eyes upon his face, Following his where'er they went- Till another filled the place In its stead Till the features of the living Did outface the dead. Then for years it hung above, Hidden like a sense of shame; Fading with the fading love, In the mockery of its frame Save the eyes, Ever looking, ever looking, With such sad surprise. Oft the distant laughter brok...

A SCULPTOR'S LOVE STORY. The capital of Anjou is preparing to do honor to one of its most illustrious children. The sculptor David is to be commemorated by a statue, the work of a M. Noel, who obtained the first prize in the competition or ganized by the town of Angers. Barthelemy Saint-Hilaire has been deputed to represent the Government at the inaugural ceremony, and the occasion will probably be seized to put forward a species of ministerial pro gramme. The life of David of Angers forms a fitting subject for republican panegyric, as 1 he suffered persecution and banishment for the good cause. Posthumous reward has come at last, and on the spot where the em bryo artist solicited the charity of passers-by to take home a few sous to his mother, the i features of the powerful genius as he devel oped in after years will serve to remind fu ture generations of Angevins that the path of glory, if it leads but to the grave, does not always close there. The story of the struggling sculptor...

FLOATING FANIEBS. She heard the angels calling her, From that celestial shore; She flopped her wing and away she went, To make one angel more. The only curious thing about seventeen year locusts is that they turn up every three or four years. St. Louis girls object to rubbers,. "they draw the feet so." It must be an awful load, even for India-rubber. We hope that,in his inexperience, secretary the navy Goff will not be so unfortunate as to sit down on the tack of a ship. Salvini says that Mary Anderson is a prom ising young actress. Probably Mary said Salvini was a "horrid old thing" when she heard this. One of the greatest astronomers of this. country lost a barrel of pork by not knowing how much salt it required to keep it. He was great but fresh.

fW Y DO BOLDIERB DRINK ? To the RIVER PRESS. On entering the home of the soldier, we are at once struck by the neat and trim ap pearance of the ground, the well laid-out walks and the exactness with which every thing is placed. As a class of men the Ameri can soldier is second to none, and ranks with the best. The main cause which has lowered the private soldier in the estimation of peo ple is the same which affects unhappiness and disgrace of legions of mortals. It is drink. As a general thing, the liquor served to soldiers or the poor classes of peole is of very indifferent quality, adulterated with drugs and ingredients to produce a strong and fiery taste, which,if properly analyzed, would show an astonishing amount of poison in jurious to the system, where good liquor would stimulate and uphold the nerves of men. The question is often asked, why do soldiers drink? In the first place the Army consisting of from twenty to thirty thousand men, most of whom are in the prime of life,...

THE RIVER PRESS, Wednesday, March 2, 1881. H. C. WILLIAMS, - - -- - - - EDITOR THE Legislature parted its closing days with good humor and a kindly fellow feeling, perhaps congratulating itself that it had ac complished so little and talked so much. CABINET making continues and slates are made and broken. But there is a kind of similarity in them all. Blaine always heads the list, and there is so far a great predomi nence of Western men. Garfield, however, keep3 his own counsel, and the country will know in due time just what to expect from the new administration, which bids fair at present to be firm and strong, and in a great measure free from personal and clique in fluence. We have an idea that this will be a Gartield administration. THE most important bill introduced and passed in the Council during the session of the Legislature was the following, by Hund ley during the closing hours: Resolved, That the Council do recommend and request that any moneys remaining in the hands of ...

OUR NUN RIVER LETTER. SuN RIVER, MI. T., Feb. 28, 1881. To the River Press: This is the first time I have attempted to write a letter for publication in any newspa p per. There have been so many sharps of that kind here at the Crossing this winter I and apparently all having met with success, I thought I would try my hand at the busi ness. Not that I ever expect to become no- 3 torious as a correspondent or even an expert in the business, but now that the Record hav ing so able a representation here, I thought I would try and fnrnish you with a few scraps that "Pilgrim" in his eagerness might over look, thus giving both papers an equal show, that is, both as correspondent. Yet I haven't got the cheek to suppose that your correspon- 1 dent can write so able an article as "Pilgrim" can, he being an old hand at the business. This has been a hard winter on stock in this valley; the loss to stockmen is estimated all the way from 10 to 20 per cent. There are two or three parties out skinn...

NAPOLEON III. { Personal Peculiarities--Some of His Good Qualities-His Escape from Ham. E. C. Grenville-Murry contributes to the Swiss Times some personal reminiscences or Napoleon III., from which we make the fol lowing extracts: "Apropos of the Emperor's private life, one can not help alluding to this most ennobling feature of it that he never for got a kindness. An Englishman had the good fortune to oblige the Emperor in the days of his Majesty's greatness. 'If I can be of any service to you,' said Napoleon, 'you have to ask me.' 'Your Majesty,' stammered the Englishman, 'I-I-I- should like the-the -Legion of Honor.' 'Oh,' said the Emporor with a smile, 'I should not have offered it to you, as I imagined your Government did not allow Engiishment to wear it except under extraordinary circumstances, but if you can get over that difficulty, by all means.' Here Napoleon went to a cupboard, unlocked a drawer, and took out a small cross in bril liants. 'This,' he continued, 'once belon...

THEY A.` SHE. They say, in wondering surprise, (And yet it is not what I sought,) "Your life is purer than we thought, A mist has hung before our eyes. "We did not deem you worthy praise; We o ,ly saw the darkened past, And did not know, that years fly fast, And naught is clear through fog and haze. "We said-What has been, must be still, His present copies true his past; The cloud of sin that overcast His youth, must still the fair sky fill. "We judged you harshly all these years, We were not fair to you nor just; And now we bow us in the dust, And, conscience-smitten, beg with tears, "That you forgive us for the wrong, That you forget how blind we wore; And we will join in praise with her, Who has, alone, in trust been strong." To this I answer, carelessly: "Your meed of praise I have not sought; The good within me has been wrought By her who has been true to me; "And she to me is all in all, Her praise is praise enough for me, I look within her eyes and see She loves and trusts, t...

PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL. The Transvaal is larger than France. The business men of Germany are exten sively signing a memorial favoring bimetall ism. In Sweden and Norway, in snowy weather, trusses of hay and straw are tied to the lamp posts for the birds. There is some talk in St. Louis of starting a new republican organ with Mr. Schurz as its political editor. The Madison observatory is to be provided with a sideral clock manufactured expressly for it in Amsterdam. The Sioux Indians are rapidly becoming civilized. One of them has just committed suicide, having first tried to murder his wife. In the opinion of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Mr. Conkling, although he may not be able to prevent a nomination in 1884, can certain ly defeat an election. The story that Mr. Hayes will go abroad at the end of his term is untrue. Friends of General Garfield declare that if he wishes to do so he can go in an official capacity. The English members who voted against the second reading of the bill for...

His mortal sublimity is drawing to an unfortunate close. FRANK P. STERLING has been reappointed Receiver of the Land Office at Helena. This gives univers'al satisfaction to the people and press, many of the latter of whom have had the pleasure of doing business through him, and none say anything but words of favor, and this is praise enough when the responsibilities of the position are considered.

PRESIDENT GARFIELD'S INAUGUR AL ADDRESS, WASIIGCTON-, March 4.-The following is Gen. Garfield's inaugural address: Fd'owc citizens:--We stand to-day upon an eminence which overlooks one hundred years of national life of a country crowded with perils, but crowned with triumphs of liberty and love. Before continuing the onward maich let us pause on this height for a mo ment to strengthen our faith and renew our hope by a glance at the pathway along our people hope by a glance at the pathway which our people have traveled. It is n )w three days more than a hundred years since the adoption of the first written consti tution of the United States-the articles of confederation and perpetual union. The new republic was then beset with danger on every hand. It had not conquered a place in the family of nations. The decisive battle of the war for independence, whose centennial an niversary will be celebrated at Yorktown, had not been fought. The colonists were struggling not only against the ...

THE CLAIMS OF GREECE. The claims of Greece! The claims of Greece! No doubt Miss Sappho loved and sung; But how can Europe keep the peace, The wily Greek and Turk among; Eternal summer may be there, But noise of war is in the air. The nations look on Marathon, And wonder sometimes wiii there be A fight like that which erst went on Between the mountains and the sea, Where Turk and Greek may find a grave, If neither party will behave. A Bismarck sat with furrowed brow And scanned the Treaty of Berlin; Quoth he, "There'll be a fearful row. My interference must begin; We'll arbitrate, he spoke, when lo! Both Greece and Turkey answered "no!" "Trust not for freedom to the Franks" Was Byron's sage remark to Greece, He bid the Hellenes close their ranks, Their only hope for full release. They've taken his counsel, it would seem, Yet surely 'tis an idle dream. "Fill high the bowl with Samian wine," Whatever Samian wine may be, And still let Grecian temples shine, Be Greece inviolate and free;...

WHO ARE THEE BOERS ? The Sturdy Dutch Farmers in South Africa Who are Fighting the British Lion. [Chicago Time,.] So long as there was a hope that the diffi culties in the Transvaal would be settled by negotiations between the contestants, it was unreasonable to expect that a dispute arising in regions so distant would excite any other interest than would be naturally stirred by a national struggle for liberty, but there is no doubt, to-day, that both sides mean to fight. Sir George Colley has contested two desper ate battles, and has not yet been able to cross the frontier. The reinforcements that are slowly traveling in ox-wagons to his aid may be matched by Boer reinforcements from the Orange free states. There is every proba bility that a war of considerable magnitude is now fairly opened. No articles, therefore, are more timely than those which discuss the Boers, their past and their future, in thb cur rent number of The Nineteenth Century and CoJttemporary Review. Sir Bartle F...
